I love my husband. It’s why I married him. He is pretty much perfect for me. We complement each other well and make each other happy. It’s what you look for in the person you are going to marry. There are a million reasons why I love him. Some I can explain and some I can’t. All I can say for sure is that I am lucky to have my husband. Do you want to stay on the same page with your husband?

1. He Supports and Believes In Me
I take on a lot of projects. Relatively random ones too. Everything from a new job in a new field, to a new hobby.
In just the past 2 months I have started my first raised vegetable garden, applied to be a leader for an outdoor kids group, started back up on blogging in every extra second I have, and begun to sew (my sewing machine will be here in June, thanks Mom). And he just rolls with it.
At first, I didn’t really know that there are so many husbands that don’t do these 2 very important things for their wife. But after enrolling in a course for blogging that cost a decent amount of money last year, I learned that a lot of husbands actually specifically said that they didn’t believe their wife could succeed.
But my husband actually convinced me to enroll in the course. He said to spend the $800 and invest in yourself. He noticed I was talking about it because I couldn’t get the idea of enrolling out of my head. I want to be a blogger. I love to write and I think I can help people. And this course felt like what I needed. He told me that he believed in me.
I can’t explain how amazing that is. Everyone should have that in their life. Someone who believes you are worth it. And supports you in everything you want to do. I have it.
I am lucky to have my husband.
2. He’s A Great Dad
For the first year of my son’s life my husband was gone a lot. He worked 48 or 72 hour shifts for the first 5 months. Then he was gone almost all week long for about 6 months, going to work at 7:00pm Sunday night and not getting home until 5:00pm Friday night or sometimes Saturday morning.
So my son cried more with him than he did with me. He didn’t have any attachment to his Dad. He knew who he was, but still cried when I left.
But now that Stuart is home most nights, Tobias loves his time with his Dad. He looks for Dad if he wakes up after he leaves in the morning. And when it is about time for him to get home he will watch out the window. Whenever Stuart stands duty and doesn’t come home at night, by the time 3:30 rolls around the next day Tobias is looking for his Dad who usually gets home around 4:00.
They play together and have tons of fun. Tobias tries to do just about everything Stuart does constantly.
Temperance loves her daddy too. She is content sitting with him and smiles huge when he talks to her, just like she does with me. She is just the sweetest little girl and can really put a smile on anyone’s face.
Stuart is a great Dad to our kids, and I couldn’t be happier because I am lucky to have my husband.
3. He Cares About People
Stuart is someone who would do just about anything for anyone. If you need help, he will always offer his assistance.
Anything from someone being sick and needing a shift at work to be covered, to having a flat tire on the side of the road, he wants to help. He wants the best for everyone.
And he takes it personally when people are not kind to others. Being disrespectful is both of our biggest pet peeves. It is just an unnecessary thing to do to someone. But Stuart is someone who will not accept it.
Someone was once very rude to me on the phone and he spoke to their supervisor about it. She was being very rude to both me, her customer, and the person on site working with her company, and was on speaker phone for everyone to hear. But Stuart didn’t appreciate it and told them so.
He protects just about anyone who needs it. I am so lucky to have my husband.
4. He Works Hard
My husband is someone who puts all his effort into everything he does. When he is at work, he does his job. And if something else needs to be done he always offers to do it or to help.
Everyone turns to him when they need help because they know he will say yes and that he will do a good job. No one ever has to worry that something assigned to him isn’t going to be done.
Stuart carries it over into all parts of his life. From work, to housekeeping, cooking, parenting, marriage, you name it. He puts in 100% of his effort every time.
I Am Lucky To Have My Husband
Stuart is the kind of man that I hope my daughter will find. And the kind of person I hope all my kids will grow up to be. He supports and believes in me more than anyone else. Stuart is an incredible Dad to Tobias and Temperance. He cares about everyone he comes across. And he works so hard to do his absolute best.
I love my husband more than I ever thought possible. And I am SO lucky to have my husband in my life.
